“outstanding local spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

I prefer local spots over the mass marketed chain restaurants that usually have high turnover transient servers. Rick's is a great local bar/restaurant that has been a rock solid part of Chagrin Falls for 30+ years under the original owership. Many of the servers and bartenders are long term and are knowlegable. You have a question or request, you will get no puzzled looks, just great food and great service.

This is not a white linen fine dining experience but well above typical pub food. They actually have real cooks!! Their bbq ribs are great and their wings are grilled, not deep fried! There is a standard menu and daily specials. Monday through Wednesday have daily dinner specials. You won't be disappointed of you are looking for a comfortable simple place.

“Glad I Tried It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

I had been meaning to get to Rick's Cafe for some time. I heard from friends they had very good food. Several months earlier I went on a Sunday evening and found out the Sunday hours had been cut back with closing at 7:00 pm. So this time I arrived on Saturday at 8 well before the kitchen shuts down at 10. I ordered a bacon Swiss burger at $12.00 and it was very good. I did not like the fries and gave them to the birds at home. (They liked them very much). My friend got the chicken salad and the portion was so big half went home for a meal the next day. The place was packed with a steady flow of customers waiting to be seated. The staff was friendly and attentive and my server was OK. The atmosphere was like a sports bar with TV's on the wall and the aroma in the parking lot while walking up was very tempting. There were lots of outside tables covered with snow that were inviting me to come back in the warmer weather and eat outside in the courtyard. I'm told lunch prices are much less than the dinner menu prices. I can picture me stopping again in June on a Sunday enjoying a late lunch outside in the middle of beautiful downtown Chagrin Falls. I'll be back

“Great Ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Rick's is a great family cafe in downtown Chagrin. Burgers are wonderful. Ribs are excellent. It is very popular, so there is often a bit of a wait, especially on weekends. Well worth the wait.

“Great ribs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Always good service. Cocktails could be larger! Been going there for years. Very consistent and very busy most days. Daily specials are reasonable and good size portions.
